When we design these are the users that we need to think about. We tend to design for people using technology the same way we do. These are really the people taking our courses.

Robert does a great gob with his circles! I learn so much from his circle. Now I need to organize mine better!

Photography Circle, N-Z

I'm sharing my entire photography circle tonight for the first time (I had to split it into two parts so you can see it all, because Google only lets me share 500 people in one circle, this is the second part, see my stream for first part). More than 500 photographers. I've tried to keep it to only active photographers and only folks who post high-quality images. As with all my circles, these are a work in progress. If you are missing from them, please let me know. Also, if you see people who aren't active (in other words, who haven't posted in the past month) or who aren't high enough quality to keep in here, feel free to drop me a line at scobleizer@gmail.com or leave a comment here and I'll reevaluate. Thanks!

Robert Scoble shared a circle with you.

Steve Jobs had an affect on so many things in our lives. I don't think we even realize how deep his influence is.
Gary Briggs originally shared:
 
I work in technology because of Steve. I graduated from college in 1984 and was hooked on the promise of technology when the Mac launched. I remember so many fellow students at Brown putting the new Macintosh boxes into the trunks of their parent's car during graduation week.


Everyone who works in technology is better because of Steve Jobs. And the world learned how to smile more, dance more and demand more in what we saw around us. Some people say that Apple's creed is that it's like a bicycle for the mind. Long live the original rider.

Nice article on gamification!
Gamification is making its way into our lives in so many things. Four square has integrated it into the check ins.
We need to think about how we can integrate it more frequently into our eLearning. It really can help our so many of our learners.
Jonas Lindström originally shared:
 
The best article on "gamification" - or how game psychology can be applied to other fields - that I've seen so far. Explains excellently why games are so addictive and how we can make use of that psychology to make e-learning more entertaining (and therefore more appealing to today's gaming youths).

I would have appreciated this approach when I was in school. In fact, I would appreciate this approach to learning at work as well.

Funny to watch this at a point in time when I am wondering if the work that I do matters at all.

Are you wondering what is the most important thing you could be doing with your life right now? Then watch this video. It may help you discover your life's mission. I think about this question a lot.

Cost of 4 years at Stanford, including tuition, books, housing, meals? $194,342. This speech? Priceless. Let this message sink in, it's one of the most valuable things you could ever learn.

I wonder about what this means in terms of 'expertise'. In the chapter on Experts vs. Novices in "How People Learn" (http://www.nap.edu/openbook.php?record_id=9853&page=31), one of the ideas presented is that a major difference between experts and novices is that experts possess fluent recall of facts, which allows them to recognize patterns and organize information in meaningful ways. If this 'google effect' is applied broadly, will we have experts that are able to organize information in meaningful ways, or will they simply be able to retrieve the information that has already been laid out by others?

If somone like +Robert Scoble or +Tom Anderson or share this his boss is in real trouble. :)
Mark Lucio originally shared:
 
I have a bet with my boss today! He thinks that using Google+ is a waste of time, not a realistic networking tool and does not see the benefit. So he has agreed to give me $1 for every +1 / comment I get. Considering I have over 500 connections I think I can get an iPad out of this. Start +1'ing this update or leave your comment! :D
